    Hopefully your belayer has a rope. Belaying without a rope doesn't work very well.

    Fortunately, the places with "plenty of lush greenery" are also the places without the "youth yob culture".

    Home and Garden Re: Old house, how to remove or block the smell

    Oh, that's bad news. The grey brown substance might be a levelling compound, applied on top of the old tiles to make a level surface for the lino.
